We must have been good girls and boys this year, because the Easter bunny visited our house this morning, so Ava got her first experience with those fun baskets and Ben and Lily remembered how much they love CHOCOLATE!
Later, we headed to a huge Easter egg hunt and parade in downtown Campbell with Nana and Papa. It was crazy! Ben and Lily each found one egg and the rest were gone in about 15 seconds... literally (there were hundreds if not thousands of kids at the hunt!)
After the parade, we relaxed at Nana and Papa's house with a backyard Easter picnic and an egg hunt on a much smaller scale.
My good friend, Jill, from high school came to visit us with her family - her husband Luis, daughter Isabella who is almost 10, and Matthew, who was born just 9 days after Ava. Jill and I found out we were pregnant right at the same time and actually had the exact same due date! It was so much fun hanging out with them! Here are a few of the photos of Matthew and Ava together. We know they will grow up to be great friends too :) And, Isabella, we miss you! You can come back and play with Ben and Lily anytime!
Robin was working down in Newport Beach this last week and brought Hannah with her. Nana Karin and Grandpa Steve babysat Hannah all week and then everyone headed up to the Bay Area for a quick weekend visit with our family. Lily and Hannah especially spent a lot of time together. It was so good to see you and we miss you like crazy already!
One of our favorite Sunday morning activities is to go down to the Campbell Farmer's Market (where we grab coffee and homemade cinnamon bread - yum - walk through the market and see friends, listen to music, and shop for fresh goodies) and then spend some time at the little Campbell park. This week Robin and Hannah were with us and we had a great time playing. Ava even had her first experience with sand - she did taste it (of course!), but really liked running it through her fingers and getting buried in it.
